MEET THE TEAM

Rochelle

Managing Director

We are buzzing here at Latham Smith at the moment.  Having just been awarded the fabulous GOLD award for being the ‘Best Letting Agency in WD3 2020-21’ is just mind blowing!  Add to that we won it last year as well, we feel our ethos to be able to offer the best lettings experience possible has been recognised, officially!

I really love my job.  I so enjoy dealing with the properties and people, it really is the perfect job for me.  Having been a letting agent in Rickmansworth for over 20 years now (gosh, that makes me feel old!) I want to use my knowledge and experience to help landlords in the area let their properties and look after them as I would my own home and tenants too to receive the quality of service and care that they deserve.

Being a Fellow of ARLA Propertymark, I am well aware of the pitfalls and huge amounts of legislation that governs our industry, but being aware means I can look after your property without you having to worry – leave this to us and you can just sit back, relax and watch the rent come in.

If you have a property you would like to rent out, or perhaps it’s just a vague idea at the moment and you have lots of unanswered questions, please feel free to call us for a chat and we can guide you through the process.  Rest assured you will be in safe hands; and feel free to take a look at our wonderful Google or Facebook reviews and website testimonials and see what other tenants and landlords have said about us!

I look forward to hearing from you.  Take care,

Rochelle

Director

Well let’s start at the very beginning, back in 1993 I literally fell into a job as a trainee lettings negotiator and it was love at first sight.  Now, 25 years on, I think that property is in my blood. My career in lettings began working for a London based independent agency.  I quickly made my way up the ranks and within a few years was the Manager for my company’s flagship office in Ealing Broadway.

In 2005, I moved from London to Hertfordshire and became the lettings manager of a multi award winning local independent company. I was able to instil my principles and work ethics into the business which created an incredibly successful and forward thinking team.  Being a Member of ARLA Propertymark and using the skills and experience gained over the years I have become the go-to person for not only property valuations but advising investors on purchases and all other aspects of lettings.

There have been many highlights over the years but I guess on a personal note, being voted the Best Lettings Manager in the UK by the prestigious Sunday Times Awards is hard to beat. To be recognised in this way is something I remain incredibly proud of and really does prove that passion, dedication and the will to succeed can help you achieve the highest of goals.

I love property and I love people so being able to combine the two in a career makes coming to work a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.  As a fully independent agent, I am able to provide a flexible and bespoke service to all my clients which makes Latham Smith stand out from the crowd.

If you require any advice or would just like to chat anything property, please feel free to give me a call.
